Use entry type 02, 06, 07, 12, 23, 32, 38, or 52

All raw cane sugar, HTS numbers 1701.13.1000 or 1701.14.1000, must be sampled in accordance with Customs Directive 3820-001B, dated May 01, 2007.

Please ensure that warehouse entry summaries associated with the warehouse withdrawals are not finalized and the collections for the warehouse withdrawals are only submitted as collection code 002.  A final collection code 092 with a zero amount may be processed on the warehouse entry by CBP, once the final warehouse ledger information is submitted to close out the warehouse entry summary.

An original certificate of quota eligibility (CQE) is required for raw cane sugar entry(s) with country specific allocations for the in-quota duty rate.  The CQE number must be electronically transmitted in ACE and the original certificate may be uploaded via the Document Imaging System (DIS) upon request.  Non-ABI entry summary must be updated in ACE prior to processing collections.

Any country without a quantity allocation, which is not subject to a United States embargo, may export raw cane sugar, provided it is entered at the over-quota duty rate.  These countries are not required to furnish a CQE.

Questions from the importing community regarding this information should be referred to the local CBP port.
